I am looking to change my DD's Bible curriculum (we are Evangelical Christians). She is 8 and in 3rd grade. I am open to something she can do independently or something we can do as a family (I also have 2 preschoolers). What can you recommend?

i have the 3rd grade bible circ from Abeka and use it for my 9year old and my 4 year old. Really i think the 3rd grade one is good for kids under 12. Its broken down to a kid level and both of my kids love it. It has really nice picture cards to go with each story and gives a parent guide of what to say along with the stories if you are unsure!

I use CLE (Christian Light Education) bible for my 2nd grader. She reads the short story, then does a workbook page. Easy peasy. We also read from a bible reader.

Here's our favorite links.
Calvary Chapel Kids has full/free curriculum starting from the Old Testament and going all through the New Testament.
Home Life Ministries has bible study on character qualities.http://www.characterjournal.com/
Last but not least is Answers in Genesis. They have a lot of kids activities and some movies.

We love Bible Study Guide for All Ages. There are a bunch of resources available, but I have found that all we need are the Activity Sheets, and we also have the Bible summary cards, which are great! Of course, a Bible is needed is well. I love how the whole family can read the Bible story from the Bible together, and then the kids can do their activity sheets on their own level--they come in Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced. Despite going to a Christian school from grades K-8, I feel like I am learning so much doing this curriculum with my kids because it also focuses on timeline and mapwork.

Heart of Dakota (http://www.heartofdakota.com/) is really easy to combine ages. :)
there are age guidelines for the guides but all my kids do the preschool-level crafts and rhymes and my youngest even do the science from the K/1st level with us.
each day in a unit has 2 pages to it- laid out together. The left side of the book has the movement & art/sci. activities, some reading aloud that you can probably do with everyone participating. The right side has the more fine motor, writing, math, etc. that u can add during table time or naptime.
you can adjust it after using it for a bit and there are message boards (http://www.heartofdakota.com/board3/) to guide you!
